The structure of an institution (as
with an ideal) is built with more than
just its material parts, and we are no
exception. Bricks dont lay themselves,
buildings aren't filled with mere
empty space, and bells don't always
ring because of some mechanical
device. If only we could see human in-
teiition, if only we could touch emo-
tions, maybe then there would be an
end to misunderstanding and near-
sightness. Ah yes, an institution. Its
buildings may be made of bricks, but
its purpose is made of another materi-
al entirely. The scientists call it neural
impulse, to the psychologists it's the
higher cognitive processes, and the
philosopher sometijnes refers to it as
the .soul. Perhaps some of us have for-
What shall we do with all the people? What shall we give
them? What do they want? Is it merely the degree? Shall
we be a school of survival techniques? Is that what the
common man wants? Perhaps the best thing is not giving
the man what he says he wants, but helping him doubt
his wants and start from the beginning again. Sure, throw
in the diploma . . . but don't let anyone take it too
And, as if the students didn't have enough problems,
there was politics to mess around with.

Procopius: Socrates, wake up! Forget about our clia-
logue today. Instead, we must travel to Lisle
and listen to the three wise philosophers
Who are these wise ones, that your ears itch
to hear their doctrines?
First of all, there is Patricia of Fauser, teach-
er of Ethics. She speaks of the Good, the Bad,
and sometimes the Ugly. Next, there is Ber-
nard of Toussaint, who searches the campus
in vain for a meta-ph\sician. He brings great
tidings about Being and Time. Finally, there
is their master, Virgil of Trelo. He converses
with the gods and speaks softly to his dis-
ciples about Man and Religion. At exam
time, his students sweat more than Hercules
did at the Olympics.
Why do you wish to join their company and
what do you propose to learn?
I want to be a Philo.sophv major.
Ah, there is a rare group for you . . . rarer
than the number of Democrats in DuPage
Procopius; Quite true. The)' are but a handful of youths
and maidens. But they meet e\ery fortnight
for lunch and exchange thoughts on matters
important for the soul.
Socrates; Such as?
Procopius; Halloween parties . . . Trips to the art muse-
um . . . Lectures at the great academies . . .
and dinner parties at Diana's Grocery Store.
Socrates; Tell me, what does the future hold for this
Procopius: It is rumored that the leaders of the Republic
wish to give a sum of gold to the philoso-
phers so that new methods of teaching their
doctrines ma\' be discovered.
Socrates: You have answered well, Procopius. I have
but one more question, a question that
grasped Thales as he fell into the well. It
grasps me as I sit in the bathtub and read the
Socrates; What can you do with a Philosophy major?
The Fine Arts Department, while not a major, attempts
to provide the student with — gasp! — culture. The aim of
it is not to have students memorizing painters or tons of
music, but rather to round out a student's education. It at-
tempts to e.xpose the student to the more humane efforts
of man, for IBC could not truly call itself a liberal arts
and science college if it did not provide this education in
a field that is too often ignored.
The department is run under Father Leo Vandura,
O.S.B., who not onlv teaches art, but also is responsible
for the prints lining the walls of the Administration Build-
ing. These prints were part of his unceasing effort to per-
suade people that art is an integral part of everyone's life.
Mr. J.C. Barnhart, who is perhaps more well known for
his direction of pla\s at Sacred Heart Academy, formerly
instructed all of the theater courses; but the addition of
another instructor in this area, Mr. Menno Kraai, relieved
him of some of this burden. Finally, Mrs. Rosalie Loeding
of the Music department instructs the classes in Music
Between these four instructors, the major areas of ar-
tistic endeavor are covered. The courses rarely go bevond
the introductory level because of the lack of student in-
terest. But since Fine Arts is not a major and it does not
attempt to go into any great depth on its topic; it
provides, rather, a broad overview for the student and is
able to accomplish its basic purpose very adequately.

Theology, both because of its subject matter and the
fact that it is required for graduation, has long been the
subject of unfavorable comment. Therefore, not only do
its teachers feel that they must get the subject matter
across but also that they must work twice as hard to mo-
tivate the student.
This task is not difficult in a course such as Mr. Jon
Nilson's one on Marriage which naturally has an appeal
to a wide variety of students. It evidences itself more in
courses like The Old Testament. At an age when people
are seriously questioning their theological beliefs, it is
difficiJt to relate the subject matter to the life of the
student, especially when the student may not believe in
Theology does not attempt to preach to the student but
rather to start him thinking. "I can think of no worse situ-
ation than being in front of a theology class and ha\ing
everything you say taken as the absolute truth," stated
department chairman, Fr. Philip Timko, O.S.B. Fr. Ar-
nold Tkacik, the third instructor in the department,
agrees: "I try to promote discussion in my classes and
onlv spend the minimum amount of time lecturing. The
students can only learn so much from me — most of it
they have to do on their own."
But the faculty members have kept the faith and are
tr\ing to overcome the obstacles. Theology at IBC, as
they will take pains to point out, is not the same as
religion, and the attempts to create a thinking student
will never cease.

The most formidable problem in attempting to teach
history is the usual complaint of the lack of relevance of
the subject. In its courses of instruction the IBC History
department is attempting to overcome this problem.
In order to do this, however, two fundamental changes
in the philosophy of the department were necessary. The
first was that the method of instruction was altered. The
step was made towards more discussion about contem-
porary issues with references to their historical
background instead of merely discussing (or lecturing on)
the actual historical event. The second change comple-
mented the first. Courses are now offered which are rele-
vant to modern historical and political situations. Ex-
amples of this would be the new addition of Chinese his-
tory as well as the continuation of the course in Russian
history and topics in modern European history.
The varying fields of expertise among the faculty of the
department facilitate this appraoch to learning. Rev.
Christian Ceplecha, O.S.B., chairman of the department,
instructs in the field of English historv and also in the
professional courses in the department, such as his-
toriography. Gloria Tysl is the chief instructor in the area
of mediev;il history, Philip Bean in American History,
and the newest member of the department (added this
past year), Joel Setzen, in European and Asian History.
The aim of the department does not stop at teaching its
majors history — memorizing dates and events. Even
higher than this on their list of priorities comes the re-
sponsibility of instilling what Mr. Bean refers to as the
"historical attitude" in not only their majors but also in
the people fi-om other departments who must take history
courses. This attitude is best defined as an objectivity
when reading and analyzing historical data. "Without it,
a student can memorize every history book that has been
written and still not come out with a comprehension of
the subject. Any book which he reads will be slanted
towards that particular author's point of view, and the
student must develop the ability to judge the degree of
objectivity and validity in any given piece of work," com-
mented Miss Tysl.
The combination of newer ideas when it comes to
teaching methods and a wider variety of subjects has con-
tributed to the esteem in which the history majors hold
their department. At IBC it is difficult to find any major
who will criticize his or her department, but as a senior
history major said, "It is difficult to criticize the depart-
ment because it is in the process of change. We can't real-
ly judge it until it's stopped changing, and I hope that
time will never come. Like every department, it has its
good and bad points, but at least it's trying to change the

English has been traditionally regarded as the "cop-
ut" major — if you flunked out of science, you changed
our major to English. This is unfortunate because, in
pite of the fact that IBC is traditionally a science-
riented institution, the English department has had
mazing success in revamping its curriculum without
acrificing the quality of its education.
This has been done mostly through the process of in-
reasing the number of courses available. Also, the En-
lish major feels less confined in the choice of subjects
/hich must be taken. Majors are no longer restricted to
iterarv courses. The department has expanded its core of
technique" subjects to include seminars on writing tech-
ique, journalistic and creative writing, and a senior sem-
nar to coalesce the literature courses with these more
iracticallv oriented courses.
Several changes in personnel were also made during
the year as part of a rebuilding effort. The department
acquired a new chairman. Dr. Cohen, as a replacement
for Dr. John Byrne who retained his professorial standing
but .stepped down from the chairmanship.
The greater number of course offerings has also made
way for a new approach to teaching methods. Teachers
who once adhered stringently to certain methods of
teaching have now incorporated more discussion into
their classroom methods. Still they are limited by the sub-
ject matter. Emphasis is now placed more on methods of
interpreting literature, and this means that the English
student must devote a great deal of his or her time to
reading both the literature and its critiques. There is onl\-
so much which can be done to modernize the subject.
A great deal depends on the individual instructor's
approach to teaching. Rosemary Coleman, one of the
teachers in the department, is quick to point out that "the
department is made strong by the fact that each of its
professors has different views on what approach should
be taken to the study of literature."

The most misunderstood people on campus are those
residents of the fourth floor. Administration building.
And "residents" is to be taken literally. For the fourth
floor houses the Music department.
Students in the department do much more than make
noise. It's true that eerie sounds can be heard emanating
from the place at any hour of the day or night; but these
eerie sounds eventually team up with other eerie sounds
and the end result is, more often than not, beautiful.
Irate students in the department have for ages tried to
explain to unsympathetic ears that their major is not what
is known as a "fish" major. Music students spend at least
as much time on their majors as would a chemistry
student — not with labs, but with practices, chorus,
orchestra, and various lessons which are required of
them. They must have a reasonable amount of expertise
in several instriuiients before they leave with their
degrees. To gain this expertise involves much sacrifice in
both free time and activities. Yet they always seem most
enthusiastic about these sacrifices. What could possibly
motivate people to spend this much time on their studies?
The answer lies in a medium-height, graying, energetic
priest known to the college commimity as Father AIIkih.
Tlie Rev. Alban Urcliic, O.S.B., is responsible not only for
a large amount of motivation on the part of his students
but also for the creation of a number of brilliant pieces of
music. Last year it was the presentation of an original
work known as The Paschal Symphony, executed by the
IBC orchestra around Easti'r time, Tliis vear it was the
benefit performance of his original balletorio, A Li^ht
For The Darkness, a brilliantly inspiring work of art
which was presented at the Auditorium Theater in
Chicago on April 7th. Fatlu'r Alban possesses a con-
tagious enthusiasm for music and its performance which
extends itself to the majors in the departnii'ut.
Music at IBC is not taught purely as music; it is com-
bined with the study of education. This does not detract
from the fact that the student must still be proficient in
his studies of music. It requires a great deal of self-dis-
cipline to stay in the department. There is no way to go to
your courses and forget about them the minute final
exams are over. Its not possible to bull your way through
college in this major; and music is probably one of the
few majors of which this can truly be said. By making
music not merely their major but also their life, students
in the department have maintained a pride and a spirit
which is seldom seen anywhere else on campus.

One of the most neglected departments on campus is at
the same time one of the most useful departments here.
"Which one?" you ask. And to this will I reply, "Lan-
"Useless," some people may scoff. Ask any science
major who will know that some of the greatest scientific
minds came from other countries where English was not
spoken. Ask a humanities major. It is not humanly pos-
sible to decipher an ancient Latin scroll without knowing
the language. Ask a social science major how it is possible
to read about political ideas of France or An Anthology
of German Sociological Thought without knowing the
language; and being the supremely logical people that
they are, they will tell you that it is not.
The Language Department attempts to provide a right
arm to many of the other fields at IBC David Champlin,
French instructor and department head, commented,
"Many times in research or in required readings, students
may come across valuable material from other countries
which has not been translated. We attempt to provide the
student with the knowledge of languages so that the door
to real learning will not be closed to them because of a
lack of knowledge of a foreign language."
The department does not restrict its teaching to the ac-
tual language either. In upper division courses many
times the student will be presented with a view of the
culture lying behind the language. Many subjects may be
brought in during these courses, such as the history or
politics of a certain country. Thus the student gains a
total view of the country rather than just the method of
communication in it.
One of the main complaints of students in regards to
the language department is that too much time is spent
studying grammar. "It would be much better if they were
taught in a conversational fashion," said one student. The
reason they are taught the way they are is to present the
student with the ability to read the language more in-
stead of merely speaking it. Because the department func-
tions to give students the ability to consult foreign
sources in their major, a conversational course is not
enough. It would not give the student the type of reading
ability which the department attempts to instill.
Experiments were made during the summer and in the
Educational Opportunity Period to offer courses in con-
versational German. But Mr. Champlin thinks that if
these are to be offered on a regular basis, they should be
kept separate from the other courses which stress

Over recent years the Sociology department has al-
tered its orientation from the theoretical, textbook study
of the subject to a more clinical and problematically-
oriented study of the material.
For the past few years involvement has been the key
work in the department. The lower-division courses
provide the theoretical background for much of the work
which is found in the 300-level courses. There still is a se-
nior seminar to tie together what has been learned before
in the department. But the discussions which are
presented in the seminar also have their basis in some of
the practical work which has been done by the students
both on their own and within the context of courses.
At IBC today many of the departments now have
training or internship programs which are used to give
the student an idea of the problems which he or she will
face upon graduation. The Sociology department is no ex-
ception to this. The work is not done in the form of a
semester of internship, as in other majors, but rather in a
diverse number of fields. The sociology major can expect
to be exposed to prisons, old age homes, inner-city work,
and various numbers of other fields. Because IBC does
not have a major in social work, it tries to compensate for
this by providing a solid theoretical and practical
background which can be utilized bv the student who
wishes to go into social work. This background can also
be handily applied to entering fields such as police work.
Fr. Robert Rogalski, chairman of the department, is
very enthusiastic about his department and its students.
'To be a successful sociology major or at least to make
any practical application of the work, a sociology student
must like people and must be willing to give a part of
himself to the work. I don't think that any of our students
are not that type. I feel that we are preparing them well
for any use of the work to which they would like to apply
it. I've said it before, but it's worth repeating — not every-
one can be a successful sociology student."
Still, there is some pressure to put in a "professional
semester" which would be entirely devoted to this out-
side work. It's very difficult, both in terms of time and in
terms of course load, to do as much outside work as the
sociology student must do and still keep up in other sub-
But this is still in the talk stages. In the meantime,
majors must put up with the situation. Most of them,
however, don't consider it too much of a burden and as a
result are pleased with the unique type of training which
their major provides.

The addition of physical t'ducation as a major field of
stud\ has impro\ed the department immensely. And in
that sentence is summed up the sentiments of many of the
people who switched their majors to P.E. this past year —
people who had pre\iouslv only been able to show their
enthusiasm for the department by svyeating out (literally)
a large number of P.E. courses.
The fact that P.E. has now become a major has shifted
the emphasis from the physical, bod) -training side of P.E.
to the theoretical aspects of it. P.E. majors mu.st now
complete a large number of hours in courses such as
kinesiology (muscles) and care of injuries — courses
which force them more into the biological world than
perhaps any of them had intended.
"But after all, physical education is exactly what the
name implies — the training of the body," commented
department head Anthony LaScala. "And in order to
train the body, its workings must first be completely un-
derstood. I am convinced that with the P.E. major as we
have it now, our .students can go into any number of
widely diverse fields from coaching to teaching to even
physical therapy. I'm very pleased with the way the
department is going — the direction which it has taken
since P.E. was made a major." "We've added on teachers
and this in turn permitted us to add on courses, and the
addition of these courses has only served to improve the
department more." stated Mary Sarubbi, women's P.E. in-
P.E., by the very nature of its subject matter, has never
had a diffieult time in recruiting people for its classes.
This is not entirely due to the fact that P.E. is a required
course in many majors. The department in recent years
has added such courses as skiing and horsemanship
because the .student demand was so high. Even though
these courses are taught ofi'-campus because of the lack of
facilities and despite the fact that a fee niu.st be charged
for rental of materials, interest in courses such as these
has continued to run high. Mr. LaScala hopes that the
new P.E. complex, which is planned for the future but is
still in the fund-raising stage, will serve to generate even
more interest in the department offerings. "Many
students take P.E. courses because of the recreation value
rather than the grade. I have confidence that the money
put into the P.E. complex will not go to waste. '

Political science is inherently a broad subject. It covers
many aspects on three levels of politics; international, na-
tional and local. In obtaining faculty members for the
department it has succeeded in balancing out these three
aspects. Mr. Charles Butler, department chairman,
teaches national government. Mr. Robert Rybica in-
structs local government. And the newest faculty
member. Dr. Christopher Kornaros, is the expert in inter-
national relations. So the political science department
should be ideal, right?
This has been said many times before and, unfortu-
nately, it still holds true: IBC is a natural-science-
oriented institution. As a result, many of the social
sciences have had an acute case of stunted growth. Politi-
cal science is only one of them.
One thing which has been neglected in the department
is the fact that there is more than one way of conducting
political research. The department has been traditionally
theory -oriented. Majors who had hoped for a change in
this were once again this year sadly disappointed.
Because of the lack of money available, a teacher who
had specialized in the empirical methods of gathering po-
litical data could not be hired. In addition, not only polit-
ical science but the other social sciences as well could use
a computer. Cost has obviously made that out of the ques-
So, while it is able to give its students a good
background in theoretical politics, the department has
failed to adequately prepare its majors in certain other
areas. An attempt is made to present these methods in the
Senior Seminar but it can't really be done without ex-
posing the student to some sort of practical utilization of
But the department is finally beginning to realize this.
Still in the planning stages are the internships to various
village governments where students can learn the prac-
tical methods of government. The shift is to a more em-
pirical approach to political research and classes, except
in those theory courses in which it is obviously impossible
to use these methods.
These improvements are geared towards preparing the
student for a more subject -oriented career than selling in-
surance or for helping out those students who want to
enter practical politics rather than teaching the subject.
With the change to more progressive thinking and the
break away from the more traditional teaching methods,
the political science major can perhaps become more of a
challenge than it has been in recent years.

And here sits the Economics department, over-
populated and understaffed.
The addition of the Business Economics major and the
increased number of courses offered at night by the Econ
department provided the impetus for a surge of people
from the nearby communities to enroll in the degree-
completion program. This condition has existed for ap-
proximately the past two years. Yet not only has the
department not been able to obtain its sorely needed ad-
ditional teacher but it also lost one.
With the department chairman. Rev. Dismas Kalcic,
O.S.B., on leave of absence to complete his doctoral dis-
sertation. Dr. Marguerite Roth (the former Dr. Paulus)
has been left in control. Dr. Roth is pleased with the
department and its majors but feels that the staffmg
problem precludes any real improvements or fun-
damental changes within it. "We could offer an addi-
tional number of night courses for those students who
only attend at night if we had another faculty member.
But I am very satisfied with the courses which we are
presently able to give." she stated.
Mr. Jeffrey Madura, instructor in the business econom-
ics section, also feels that the number of courses is good
but that it must be expanded. 'The addition of at least
one more instructor would give us the opportunity to
present a wider range of subject matter to the student.
The curriculum at night is very good. We now have
courses which cover any conceivable time slot at night;
but we must also think of the full-time day student who
does not wish to spend all of his nights in a classroom.
But at the moment, the only time we can offer the classes
is at night where they will do the most good bv reaching
a larger number of students."
The department is in somewhat better shape in this
respect than it was last year with the addition of a part-
time teacher, Mr. Stein. He was hired not to teach any
new courses but rather to take the load off of Dr. Roth
and Mr. Madura.
Despite all of this, the majors in the department feel
that they are receiving an excellent education. "The busi-
ness curriculum is excellent and prepares vou for doing
almost anything in the business world, from accounting
to management," commented one senior. If all goes as
planned, it will train them even more adequately as Dr.
Roth is still in the stages of planning a one-semester in-
ternship program which would allow the student some
practical training in a job before graduating.

On any given morning at approximately 7:30 or 8 a.m.,
)ne can see a sleepy-looldng group of very strangely
iressed people making their way towards the various
jarking lots on campus. "Who are these people?" you
nay ask yourself.
'These people" are involved in the process of practical
?ducation. They are the student teachers of IBC, travel-
ng hither and yon to impart the pearls of wisdom learned
lere to the youth of America. But fear not, for this process
s not one sided. The youth of America are also transmit-
ing their own type of knowledge to the student teachers
-the type of knowledge that can never come from a text-
look but only through living, working, and concentrating
)n their chosen profession.
Student teaching, which has gradually evolved into
.vhat it now known as the "professional semester," is the
;ulmination of an education major's college career. In
>rder to participate in this learning experience, the edu-
cation major must first complete the education sequence
md a specified number of hours in a major field of study,
-"reviously, it was difficult for someone who was con-
emplating a career in secondary education to carry
hrough this desire because the large number of educa-
ion courses required in a major field of study would have
ilmost certainly pointed to a fifth vear of college. But the
lewly instituted secondary education major made this
kvorrv unnecessary. It lessened the number of hours
'equired in a field of concentration. "It wa.sn't practical,"
itated Dr. Edward lanni, department chairman.
'Students would be taking courses in their major fields
:hat they really didn't need for teaching in a secondary
ichool. By cutting down on the number of hours, we have
made it possible to obtain a more well-rounded educa-
:ion, which makes a far better teacher."
Dr. lanni and his fellow education professors, Fr.
David Turner, O.S.B., Mr. Chester Kagel, and new addi-
:ion, Mrs. Sydell Weiss" are reformulating the aims of the
education department. Formerly, it was important to turn
3ut teachers who were well -acquainted with their materi-
al. The emphasis on this aspect has not been lessened;
rather, it has been added to. With the advent of new
teaching methods and progressive education, the empha-
sis is now also placed on turning out teachers who will be
open thinkers, who will accept new ideas in education.
An analytical mind is important — the teacher must be
able to evalutate new ideas in education and decide on
the wisdom of complementing them in class. Dr. lanni
perhaps summed up the entire trend by stating: 'The
minds and the future of the country are in the hands of
teachers. We need people who will respect that fact, who
will always accept their job with a bit of awe at the re-
sponsibility which they have." And maybe our student
teachers, returning exhausted from their daily trials, can
best appreciate that statement.

As do most other departments on campus, the Psychol-
ogy department has its difficulties. Part of these dif-
ficulties came from the condition of the rooms which
house the psych department. The heating was unpredic-
table, and one instance of its failure was the cause of the
death of several lab animals. The old science building has
been the home of the department since its formation sev-
eral years ago; but there are plans to find a new location
since the school has agreed to turn the old science build-
ing into a Student Activities Building.
In spite of these problems the psych department has
done very well this year. The new curriculum, which was
worked out by the majors of last year, went into effect
smoothly and eliminated much of the confusion and
overloading in certain courses. Several of the rooms were
redone and the new lab finished. The two new facultv
members, Drs. Choca and Green, have discovered that
they work well together, and their presence has taken
some of the work load off Brother Bernard Glos. Brother
Bernie was the only faculty member remaining from last
year's department, and upon him fell the task of reor-
ganization. The healthy enrollment in this year's courses
was testimony to Brother Bernie's success.
Two of the most popular upper-level courses this year
were the Colloquim and the Seminar. Students taking Dr.
Green's Colloquim on drugs were exposed to detailed
studies of a number of mind-altering drugs as presented
by individual class members. Dr. Choca's Colloquim on
Sex presented such topics as Sex in Society and Sexual
Psychopathology to the class members, each one
presenting a topic. The Seminar was originally di\'ided
into Clinical Practicum and Experimental Prac-ticum with
Dr. Choca handling the former and Dr. Green the latter.
However, the student response was overwhelminglv in
favor of the clinical section, so the other was dropped.
Students in Clinical Practicum traveled to various mental
hospitals and wards in the Chicago area and brought
back reports on the manner in which such places operate.
In general. Dr. Choca taught the courses which dealt
with clinical and abnormal psychology and Dr. Green,
the department chairman, handled all ex'perimental ac-
tivities. Brother Bernie taught the general and theoretical
courses — the ones by which most people judge the psvch
department in their freshman and sophomore years.
In the general view, the psych department experienced
a reawakening this year; so the prospects at the moment
are much more hopeful than they were last year at this

Out of necessity, the Biology department must remain
fairly static. Due to the nature of its subject matter and
the fact that it's hard to find any discussion or argument
about it, change in the biology department hasn't really
come about. But many people within the department
agree that change is not really needed.
Biology takes an indiyidualistic approach to its majors.
Tiie people in the department are headed for man\ dif-
ferent occupations. Within it one can find pre-medicine,
pre-yeterinary, pre-dental, and just plain biology
students. The interests of the people yary accordingly.
The emphasis in the courses has, until very recently,
remained with himian biology. This is one of the aspects
which has been changed by pressure on the part of the
students and some faculty. For example, due to the recent
surge in enyironmental studies, more courses in animal
and plant studies have been added. The problem with
these, however, is that the courses or at least the majority
Dr. Aleska Bogdanov
Dr. Richard Grossberg
of them are only offered on sufficient demand. And even
in a department as large as biology, it is often difficult to
get a sufficient number of students to sign up for such an
esoteric course as Biology of the Birds.
The emphasis in learning is shifting away from the
traditional memorization of terms to a more conceptual
approach. This change can never be complete because
the subject matter in biology requires a ma.stery of the
terms used; and becuase it is a science department, there
can be very little discussion on the material. Rather, in-
sofar as the student is concerned, the department wants
to turn out people who are highly motivated toward their
subject. This, to the teachers, is more important than in-
telligence. Educational maturity is the key phrase. Not
everyone can be a biology major for not everyone has the
self-discipline necessary to complete many of the courses.
Stated one senior, "It's very easy to get discouraged the
first two years. Sometimes it seems as if all you're doing is
memorizing. But the independent study courses are real-
ly great. They call for a utilization of all of the things that
you did learn during the previous years and it makes
much of the busy work seem worth it."
Despite the diversification of interests present in the
department, majors are pleased with it. The Biology
Department has tried to serve the interests of all of its
students. And while it hasn't always succeeded at this,
the future changes contemplated (more teachers and
course offerings) seem very promising.
The Mathematics department, because of its large
number of instructors, is able to operate on a much more
individualized basis than manv others.
Dr. Rose Carney is the head of the department. Besides
her responsibilities as department head, she also teaches
Calculus and applied math. She provides personalized at-
tention to her students in the form of tutorial help as well
as counseling for the upperclassmen in the department.
She is held in great regard by the many students who
have had her as a teacher.
Fr. Paul Tsi arouses much polarization among his
students. Some students feel that he is a good teacher and
explains the material well. Opposition was summed up in
the comment of one senior: "Bonus points and memoriza-
tion of problems for tests is high school stuff." However,
underclassmen like this method because it gives them a
chance if they are non-math majors taking math courses.
Mr. James Meehan is one of the newer members of the
department. Of all of the relatively new teachers in the
department, he has been accepted most quickly.
Father Richard Shonka is the pioneer of computer
sciences at IBC. He is accepted by all and it is obvious
that the semester would not be complete without "cookie
The other two members of the department are Phyllis
Kittel and Eileen Clark. Miss Clark's major field of study
is in computer sciences while Miss Kittel instructs, among
other things, an upper-level course in Intermediate Anal-
With the well-rounded curriculum available and the
competent teachers, IBC presents the student with a
good preparation for further study in graduate school.
One deficiency in the department which continues to
exist pertains to the text used in Abstract Algebra. The
book presently used by the department is written by
McCoy. Unfortunately, many students have found that
graduate schools will not accept courses taken fi-om this
text. One student was quoted as saying that even though
he had forty-five hours of math credit in all fields of
study, graduate schools accepted him only on limited
status because of the Abstract course with the McCoy
text. This fact has been brought out to the attention of the
department, but as yet nothing has been done. It has
been suggested by these and other students that this text

Throughout the summer joyful notices from the regis-
trar's office foretold of an impending "new trend" in
Proco-Benedictine education, of "new ideas designed to
make learning here more dynamic." Yet, for the chemistry
and biochemistry majors who shuffled through more
quizzes, lab reports, and homework problems in the first
weeks of September, this trend was still in the offing.
Notwithstanding that, it seemed that the faculty of
IBC's chemistry department were hesitant to endorse
more independent study courses, for example, because
that still obeyed the credo, 'That which works is good."
And, indeed, for a department which sends 80? of its
graduates on to professional or graduate school and
usually helps the other 20? find a secure position in in-
dustry or teaching, who could argue?
Department chairman James J. Hazdra has attained
these healthy statistics through a firm belief that "We
want you to be the best." And since chemistry and bio-
chemistry majors notoriously stay up late either
calculating fi-ee energies or writing mechanisms for aro-
matic substitution reactions, those that stay on with the
department for Dr. Hazdra are "the best."
But despite all the trips and A.C.S. meetings, the chief
interest in the department rightly remained education. As
Dr. Tim Janis indicated, "We let the freshmen sometimes
give their own lecture. We show movies. But for all the
overhead projections and computer programs, they still
have to study the textbook, pass the tests, and in short,
Dr. David Rausch, instructor in organic chemistry —

istry major — explained, "We've been accused of over-
riding our majors, but this accusation eludes the question.
What we're concerned with is educational. Anytime you
have a grading system, anytime you have the current
flood of applicants to med school, somebody will be over-
Over the extent of the year, harder course work seemed
to project a decrease in departmental enrollment and in
subsequent department importance. It was felt that the
thrust of the biology department in hiring new instructors
and in opening new labs would detract from the chemis-
try department *s significance. "Our department is on the
brink of a real surge to overwhelm yours." observed one
biology major to a chemistry major. Yet for those students
dining in the old caf before the Gassman lecture, it
seemed that surge would be a long time coming.

Physics is a unique major. It is required by many
departments as a part of their curriculum, yet its enroll-
ment remains limited. A graduating senior class in phys-
ics is considered large if it contains three people. Because
of this, the instructors and the students have a close rela-
tionship. However, there are times when small size can
he a hindrance as well as a help.
As far as faculty goes, the department is very well
staffed. Three instructors compose the faculty. While they
have been criticized for a lack of diversity in their
approach to deciding what courses should or should not
be offered, the recent expansion of the physics offerings
indicates a sincere desire to improve the department.
The problem here had arisen when the complaint was
made that many of the courses were oriented too much
towards one particular aspect of physics. Due to student
pressure, courses such as Topics in Modern Physics and
expansion of the electronics offerings was undertaken.
This, combined with the advanced physics and indepen-
dent study classes, ha\e widened the field of potential
areas of physics which a student mav specialize in. Prior
to this, a student who wished to broaden his learning in
the area of physics had to do much of the learning on his
own. Now according to a junior phvsics student, "the in-
structors are more willing to help vou out with an\' topic
vou want to go into. In addition, the lack of required
research for seniors results in less constraint on the part of
the student to complete X number of hours of research in
order to recei\e his degree. The rationale behind this
was, that by lessening the pressure in this area, students
would be more moti% ated to do research their areas of in-
terest and proceed at their own pace. Students are
fa\()rabl\' inclined to this idea as it makes research more
of a labor of interest rather than pure labor.
The phvsics and chemistrv departments also continued
their basic introductorN' courses aimed at non-science
majors. Though received with a bit of apprehension at
first, these courses are working out well, due to the fact
that they are presented on levels which are comprehen-
sible to the non-science-oriented person. They are aimed
at teaching the student more practical things which he
can use, such as electricity, gravitation, and other as-
sorted subjects which can be of use to the student.
Despite the fact that many people argue that ha\ing
these 'dumnn- science" courses defeats the purpose of a
science requirement, they are still welcomed with a sigh
of relief by people who can't appreciate science as its

The Institute for Management (IFM) is an aspect of
this college that very few people know about. Once again
the student's scope of knowledge has been limited to
those aspects which directlv affect him, and therefore all
he knows about the IFM is that it's the reason the lights
on third floor Benedictine Hall are on every night, and
that it is sufficient cause to fill up the parking lot with
fancy cars. However, there's much more to the storv than
meets the eye.
IFM claims middle managers from various aspects of
business and industry, and gives them a program of con-
tinuing education that is applicable to their field. It is a
rather unusual program in that it is supported bv the in-
dustries that send their men into the program rather than
by the managers themselves. Most participants in the
program are area people, and therefore we mav consider
the program to be a community benefit. The director of
the IFM is Mr. Edward Carrol, himself a long-time resi-
dent of the community. Perhaps through the existence of
such institutions, the gap between business and the aca-
demic world will be a little bit smaller, thereby bettering

"Hey, who the hell are those guvs with the blue binders
anyway?" Why, don't you know? Those are the people
who are indirectly responsible for bringing the concept of
air-conditioning to IBC. Yes friends, these brave men in
blue (usually) are all policemen serving this great state of
Illinois, and because of them we have two air-condi-
tioned dorms, one air-conditioned cafe, no students on
third floor Neuzil, and about fort)' uniformed cops e\'ery
fourth Friday or so.
The Police Training Institute, or the PTI as it's known
to all our campus familiars, is a rather recent part of
Procopian historv. In the summer of 1972, IBC offered the
extension di\'ision of the Universitv of Illinois some extra
space present on campus for use as a regional training in-
stitute for policemen. The PTI trains voung policemen in
some of the finer aspects of their work, such as law, finan-
cial concerns, criminiil psychology, etc. And that's who
all those guvs with the blue binders are. But that's okay,
after all, the policeman is your friend.

Throughout the past school year there has been much talk of changing the classroom atmo-
sphere, the classroom curriculum, the classroom expenses, and in some cases the classroom itself.
Our college has not been one noted for keeping up with modern trends to say the least, but this
past school year we found IBC one step ahead of itself in the field of education, with positive
approaches to establish a new educational environment. Various meetings were held by nmny
diverse groups discussing these new educational and academic policy proposals, each adding its
own input to the mounting pile of discussions.
Below we have enclosed some opinions we found in shoe boxes, desk drawers and garbage
chutes that were apparently overlooked by the owners at the end of the year. We have chosen
three of the himdreds of letters, each originating from the distinctly different facets of the college
academic community. We hope you enjoy reading them, as we enjoyed printing them.
The small private college of today faces the real possibility of closing its doors to the public
unless major changes in the overall college atmosphere can attract the high-school senior searching
for his identity in a complex society.
Slowdown in enrollments, fierce competitiveness in student admissions, greater campus
complexity and impersonalities, the rising costs coupled with tuition increases, the declining ap-
peal of the religious image, suddenly revealed difficulties in fundraising and alumni activities, all
add to the mounting problems a college finds itself struggling within today's sophisticated world.
Formal education plays a most interesting role in today's refined society, yet as every adminis-
trator knows, there must be proper emphasis placed upon the realities our students must face. No
longer can we turn our eyes from the cancer of private education . . . money matters. In order to
stay afloat on the high seas of society, our tiny vessel must make strong its mast and spread its sail
and change all its academic programs! Only then can we be sure to thwart off the Satan of high
costs in college education, and bring into our college ranks any flunky we can get our hands on. I
realize gentlemen, this sounds diastic, harsh, imprac-tical, absurd, and against all Benedictine
ethical standards, yet all signs have indicated that unless our traditional emphasis on small size,
personal attention, moral and spiritual values, liberal education, and general excellence are given
little priority in this situation, our beloved college will be swallowed by the silent typhoon of cost
We must remember that without a classroom in which to hold classes, there can be no class. So
let us put aside for the time being, the trivial arguments our most educated scholars provide. Let us
not depend upon the quality of our educational programs, but let us be concerned with the quan-
tity of tuition-paying applicants that knock at the Admissions Office door.
I beg of you, listen to me before it is too late! Do not be tricked by the devilish means the Aca-
demic Senate has led you to believe is Truth. Do not fall to the wayside along with the others that
will have you believe that the democratic method is the right method. Avoid conversation of little
relevance such as the role of the Senate in such matters. And please do not be distracted by those
that insist that strengthening programs will build a better IBC. We must let the high school senior
decide for himself what he wants, and we know what he wants already!
I am convinced, as I'm sure you are convinced, that the only therapy available at this time for
our badly crippled institution is completely uprooting all the tradition the Benedictine order has
established here at IBC, and replacing it with my method . . . the right method, so some day we
might be able to tell our children's children we stood at the bow, proudly, as the typhoon silently
lowered its curtain around our sturdy vessel. I see no virtue in preserving our integrity at the cost
of our lives. I'm sure, by now, you agree.
I must admit, as a faculty member, the overwhelming controversy concerning the announcement
of the academic changes that have created extended bedlam on our tiny campus seems most inter-
esting to me. lam stuck in the middle of diverse factions of the campus community that lend my
defense to either side.
First of all I am an employee of the administration, without which I do not have a job. Secondly,
I am a scholar in my field of work to which I have dedicated my life. Thirdly, and most impor-
tantly, I am an instructor of the young, uncultivated minds of the future. It is my job therefore, to
prepare my students as best I can in the discipline I teach, so thev may understand the outside
world, and, more emphatically, their relationship to it.
It is sheer hypocrisy for me to stand in the front lines of a classroom environment and preach
that Truth is not relative, while practicing methods dictated to me for reasons of economic ef-
ficieny. Yet, I realize I must follow my employer's dictates in order to sustain my income. I see
these responsibilities not only through my own eyes, but also through the eyes of my wife and
children, to whom I am responsible.
So, I must ask myself now, with whom do I side? The administration, my employer? Myself, as a
freethinking individual? My students, as the future of our country? Or my family, where my most
important responsibilities lie?
Let me make some observations of what has taken place since this fiasco (for a good cause) has
begun. The faculty dining room, once the bull ring for freethinking conversation, has become the
caucus room for the various interest groups. I find myself attending meetings two or three times a
week to establish the new educational structure (which concerns itself with educational -economic
practicalities rather than establishing a sound philosophy of education). I find myself afraid to talk
to students in the hallways with the fear that my job might be in jeopardy. I have become alienated
fi-om my fi"iends on the faculty due to differences in opinion. But these particular problems can be
overcome with time.
Now let me express my personal analysis of the situation at hand. Change for the better is not
bad. The ideas that have been thrown back and forth since the beginning of this stormy ear cer-
tainly are not to be totallv discredited. Inter-disciplinarv education is probably a necessity in a
college education. But to insist that the reasons for the interdisciplinary programming are to secure
an economically efficient system defeats the ideal of education. Then again, economic efficiency is
an intelligent method of handling any business. Yet, the economic efficiencv factors should not
overshadow the quality of education being ofi^ered. Hence, we should realize IBC's product for our
public consumer is not a diploma, but rather an education.
We must also realize that IBC is not unique in the endeavor to establish new educational goals
and techniques. The trend is nationwide, and undoubtedly a sign of the times. The need to find
deeper meanings in our everyday existence is manifested by these recent academic developments.
I accept these facts, but reluctantly.
I am told I must conform. New methods in the classroom techniques, economic efficiencies, in-
terdisciplinary education, and faculty workloads, can potentially save Academia from its recent
downfall. But then again . . .
As students in our third and fourth years at IBC, we've learned to live with many of the adminis-
trative absurdities so common in today's institutions. We've seen strongly supported student pro-
grams snuffed out by the stroke of a pen. We've also seen programs supported by a member of the
upper ranks of the administration pushed through the proper channels until "their program" could
be realized. But in all our experience with the administrative members of various areas, we never
saw such an outright challenge to the democratic process as was experienced this past year.
In mid-semester the entire faculty was supplied with an academic proposal that was to shake our
campus for months to come. The democratic process of the Academic Senate had been 'by-passed.
The entire student body had been left out of the picture. Why? Because we "might not understand
the dynamics involved." How's that for a mature attitude towards one's student clientele? This
time the upper ranks went one step too far . . . they were determined to change the academic
structure of IBC. They were convinced they were right. They told the faculty that they had to con-
form. They told the students they shouldn't be concerned with the terms. They attempted to push
through a proposal of academic alternatives that they thought were right. They saw it as their job
to convince evervone that they had found the proper combination for the troubled IBC.
The few students that did attempt to find out exactly what was going on were shunned in a
whirlpool of rhetoric. Their questions were never answered. Their opinions were unimportant.
Their support was mandatory. So it goes. We had seen an entire priinciple attacked by the means
used for such a proposal. We compared our institution to the national trends, the big business need
for management, and the upheavals of tradition. We also fought the fact that we were alienated by
the means implemented. We were reassured of our lowly position in the business of running a
The question in this debate was not for the establishment of a new visitation policy, nor was the
question at hand concerned with greater social restraints on the student body. More importantly
this debate was concerned with some of the most fundamental questions that we as free people
could ask ourselves. Can we sit idle and watch the democratic process be pushed aside for the time
being so as to establish a form of education that will pacify a society of businessmen instead of
scholars? This new era of education at IBC can be the greatest plan ever imagined for a small
private college. At the same time it should be recognized as such, and explained to all concerned
members without "hiding the goods' from the student body.
We saw a challenge to our Academic Senate, to our faculty members, and to ourselves living in a
democracy. Our teachers positions were threatened, they could no longer fight. One monk of the
Benedictine Order asked us to keep fighting. One lay teacher said "it's up to you, we're caught in a
bind. Please don't give it up!" A member of the campus radio station was asked to curtail the con-
troversy of the proposal's riunifications on his talk show. This request was made to the student by
the originator of the document itself (the student respectfully obliged).
But did all this underground protesting, all this discussion and debate ever change the situation?
For the first time since this student can remember, a student protest on this tiny campus was suc-
cessful. The student members of the Academic Senate were given copies of the proposal. To each
task force committee that the administration appointed, student members were assigned. Each ad-
ministrative committee that was established allowed student membership. The proper channels
were recognized for the approval of the new programming. The Academic Senate elected a student
member as its vice-president. Our fight against the illegal methods was a success. The entire
campus won this battle.
The crime in the past year's controversy is that it will go unnoticed by the policy making
members of the board of trustees. They will never hear how this proposal nearly destroyed the fam-
ily spirit of the IBC college community. They will never be aware of the fact that the democratic
process on which this college, this community, this country was founded was threatened by the
stroke of a pen.

G rap piers win NIIC, NAIA title under Cavich
The IBC wrestling team has grown from an intramural
organization into one of the top young small college
teams in the state in three years. Much of the credit was
given to coach Gene Cavich who worked his team hard.
The work paid off.
The IBC grapplers captured the NIIC wrestling tour-
nament, with three individual champions and five second
place finishers. The Eagles posted 82 team points to edge
second place Concordia (79), Aurora college (6632), and
Trinity with 17.
The wrestlers also won the post-season NAIA District
20 meet at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington.
The young squad was led by eight freshmen with all-
district, conference champ and MVP Ken Nemec pacing
the way. Other outstanding freshmen were Louis Lan-
gone (second district, second conference), Lupe Solis
(third di.strict, second conference), and Mark DeBoo
(fourth district, third conference.)

the hustle, enthusiasm, and teamwork throughout the
season that they displayed in the first game.
University of Chicago came into the home opener witli
a highly ranked reputation of being one of the nation's
top ten defensive ball clubs in the small college division.
Tlie starting line-up, consisting of three .sophomores, one
junior and one freshman, outhustled, outdefensed, and
outran the Maroons for a 97-94 victory. This was the first
win for Coach Gormlev, beginning his initial career as
the Eagles' varsity coach.
The Eagles lost their next five games despite playing
excellent basketball against St. Xavier and Aurora
College. Returning senior John Seno to the line-up
pro\ed to be a good decision as John enjoyed his finest
season ever, winning All-Conference honors as well as
being selected M\T by his teammates.

Judson, tiieir second and third \ictories of the season. Un-

competition due to pla\er changes.
In the last six games the Eagles played .500 ball, win-
ning three and losing three. The final two games proved
to be the most exciting offensively as the Eagles pressed
their wa\' to a 99-88 win o\ er Rockford and a hard-fought
114-107 \ ictory over George Williams College. These last
two games i)rought the team together as demonstrated bv
a two-game total of forty-three team assists.
A total of nine players lettered, only one a senior. The
eight returning lettermen should provide a nucleus for a
respectable club if they continue the tough defense that
characterized the last two games.
A total of seventeen players saw some varsit\' action
throughout the season. Two other individuals were
utilized during the five Junior varsity games played.
Despite the conference record (4-6), two of the Eagle
ball pla\ers, Tim Lorenz and John Seno, were named to
the ten-man All-Conference team.

University of Chicago
IBC Eagles Win Fourth Consecutive NIIC Crown
For the fourth consecutive year, Illinois Benedic-tine
Eagles captured the NIIC championship.
IBC first defeated the University of Illinois, Circle
Campus in a tight 9-7 victory. To grab the title, the
Eagles had to split at Concordia College. While there,
top pitcher Jerry McMahon allowed only one unearned
run in the first game, but lost a tense 1-0. This was the
second one-hit game Jerry pitched this season.
The Eagles grabbed the decisive win (5-2) behind the
strong performance of pitcher Mike McMahon. This vic-
tory established the champion Eagles as a dynastv of
sorts. The Eagles have been NIIC champs in each of the
four years the conference has existed. This year, IBC won
with an almost all-freshman team.
Senior Jerry McMahon was named Most Valuable
Player by his teammates. He has been four-year starting
pitcher for IBC, and set a school record this season, com-
piling an earned run average of 1.52. Jerrv also was
named to the NIIC All-Star team for the third time.
In addition to McMahon's record, eight other marks
were set this season, including five by freshman first
baseman Dave Lambert.
Lambert set season records for at bats (119), hits (39),
doubles (9), home runs (6) and runs batted in (27).
Freshman center fielder Dave Swanson scored a record
24 runs, while IBC won 19 games, two more than the
previous season high. Lambert was the leading hitter at
.328 and right fielder Ken Carruthers stole 18 bases in 22
Track and Field Has Best Season Yet
The 1973 Track and Field team was, according to
Coach Bruce Coleman, the best that Illinois Benedictine
College has e\ er had. The\' finished third place in the
\AL\ Indoor District #20 meet; came in second at the
NIIC outdoor meet on Ma\' 5; and, in addition, heat
DePaiil and Aurora in one meet, and Trinit\' and DePaiil
Barrv Williams was named most valuable indixidual
for the second vear in a row. He placed in e\ en' big meet
and set records in the triple jump and long jump. Other
players of note were Kevin Turner and Jerrv Skurka;
who, with Bari-v, were named captains for the 1974
season. Jerr\' has already been captain for two vears, and
in 197.3 was the only man to place in everv meet on the
Among the new plavers, the freshmen distance runners
did an outstanding job at the conference track meet. Tom

those freshmen receiving particular praise from Coleman.
In addition to Williams' records, other records set this
season were Da\e Krogull indoors with the shot and
Skurka outdoors with the pole \ ault.

some reactions from students on this past year's Student
Government as seen through the eyes of its constituents."
Q. "Excuse me, sir. I'd like to ask you a few questions
about vour Student Government. "
A. "About m\ what?"
"Your Student Go\ernment, sir. You know, that body-
political that represents you and all students in the
decision-making processes here at IBC."
A. "Oh yeah, SG. I think there should be more dances, or
more parties, or something . . ."
"Well thank vou anvway, sir. Lets move along here.
Ah, vou sir. Would vou like to comment on this past
A. "Well I guess I could, now that its over and all. I used
to be a rep for the senior class, \()u know. So I guess I
know a few things about SG."

like to mention?"
A. "Well there was this one time Jack Bearv . . . he was
the SG president, vou know?"
Q. 'Tes, I know, sir."
A. "Well, Jack changed the meeting time from nine
o'clock at night to four o'clock in the afternoon. I guess
more people were able to attend the meetings during
class hours than later at night.
"There was another time we received a lot of partici-
pation. During December of '72, they called a general
meeting of all student members, and called a Reorienta-
tion meeting. That wasn't bad, and I guess it was really
"'After that meeting we set up a few committees on visi-
tation, student union, and all that kind of stiKknt gover-
nment junk. '
Q. "Were there any real issues that ever came up in some
of the Council meetings? "
A. ""Well, there was this one time that they sent a letter to
President Ni.xon and the head of the Indians at Wounded
Knee, South Dakota. That was the only time that we
didn't confine student interest to our campus. I guess
that s prett}' important seeing since a lot of the students
will be on their own in a few years. "
Q. "What about budget problems? Weren't then' a lot of
confiising discussions about the SG budget?"
A. ""Oh yes, the budget. John Zasadzinski, the SG treasur-
er, had a heck of a time trying to convince the majority of
the student reps that he knew what he was doing when-
ever he had to juggle the budget.
"'One example was the time that the radio station
needed funds to keep themselves on the air. Not too many
members of the Council believed it was necessarv to
maintain a radio station, especially when it was our
money that they needed. The fact of the matter was that
most of the members never even knew about the station.
"Another time we almost fought over the budget — a
most unhealthy subject, I might add — was the time the
BSA almost got their money taken away because one of
the jokers on Council thought that the executives gave
them too much in the first place. Well, Titus Garnett
came to the next meeting and put the picture in a clearer
perspective, and needless to say, the money was not even

kids everyone thought was from another school, but they

Homecoming is a term applied to an interesting Ameri-
can ritual celebrating the glory and heroism of school
football teams. The name is derived from the fact that the
ceremonies are generally held at the first home game of
the season (that is, the first game held in territory indige-
nous to the school.) Homecoming season generally ex-
tends from mid-September to early November, although
some schools have been known to ci-lcbrate this festixal
as late into the season as December.
A homecoming is similar in many respects to a primi-
tive harvest festival. In fact, the theme of the 1972
homecoming at IBC was "Oktoberfest", patterned after
the famous German festival celebrated in the fall when
the grain is harvested. And, true to the pattern, IBCs Ok-
toberfest was marked by the consumption of prodigious
amounts of beer. No record of the actual amount con-
sumed is available; however, considering that the festival
lasted for nearly a week, it is probable that the local beer
merchants reaped the biggest harvest of all.
The first scheduled event of the week involved many of
the students, as the\' demonstrated their prowess in ca-
noes. Joan Hoffelt and Mary Ann Walsh paddled away
with first prize in the women's division. John Clemens
and John Pope took the honors of the day after a running
start and a truly breath-taking finish.
The race evidenth' left everyone with a big appetite,
judging by their performance in the pie-eating contest on
Monday. Dave Kiogull staggered away with the honors
in that contest. This event, sponsored by the Freshman
class, was cast into the shade that evening b\ the
brilliance of several IBC beauties. Clothes from a local
junk shop were modeled before an enthusiastic audience
in the Social Center, while Jim McDonough served as
emcee. Finally the judges decided to let Jim Moran and
Mike Sposlor share the laurels, since the\' were so ob-
viously matched equall\' in grace, poise, and charm.
On Tuesdav, Saga food service made their contribution
to the German theme b\' hold.ing a smorgasbord in the
cafeteria. The main result of this valiant attempt was to
slow the line down to a crawl.
Among Wednesday's and Thursday's activities were an
obstacle race; an ice cream social at which students were
entertained bv folksingers Bill Gore)', Mike Bohan and
Mary Fitzgerald; a polka contest; and a mud sliding con-
test. For the latter, a hydrant near the g\Tn was opened as
students used tables and brute force to deflect the stre;mi
of water into the proper area. Then, once the mud had at-
tained its proper consistency, the contestants lined up for
the run. The longest slide was achie\ed b\" Don Huber
who had, as one other contestant remarked, "the best
build for mud sliding that Ive e\er seen." The entire
event received campus-wide notice as the water supply,
stirred by the opening of the hydrant, ran bright red for
several days thereafter.
Frida\' was marked by a bicycle race \\ith 10-speed
bikes as prizes. Sophomore Tom Yuhas came in first as
rain drizzled on the small crowd of spectators present. In
the evening, after a German dinner as concei\ed b\' Saga,
a mixer was held in the gym featuring a rock band —
Weapons of Peace — and folksinger Ron Crick. Both per-
formances were verv well received. This mixer took the
place of the traditional "pep rally," a quasi-religious cere-
mony at which prayers and chants were offered so that
the football tciim might attain victory in the coming
battle. The onlv trace remaining at this year's celebration
was the announcement of the homecoming queen and her
court. In the earliest ceremonies a voung virgin was ap-
parently chosed for sacrifice at the next day's battle in
order to appease the gods of war. However, in modern
times the onlv requirement is that she be a student. Fur-
ther, she no longer attains the honor of sacrifice, but must
be content with being photographed with various of the
larger, stronger warriors. At Friday night's festivities,
Rosemarv Fuchs was announced as Queen and Joe
McQuaid was featured as honorary king, symbolized by a
Burger King Crown as a token of the coming harvest.
Tlie next day, a large crowd turned out for the football
game against Illinois college. These savages, nicknamed
the Blue Boys for some obscure reason, were out for
revenge against our institution for stealing their name
and trying to disguise it by putting "benedictine " in the
middle. The crowd, whipped into a frenzy of blood lust
by the chants and gesticulations of the cheerleaders and
pom-pon girls, watched as the teams fought. During half-
time, a parade was staged featuring the queen, court, and
cheerleaders and several floats (including one repre-
senting the Jaeger Air Corps). When it was all over, IBC
had won by a score of .52-0.
The only event remaining was the homecoming dance,
which was held that evening at the Marriott Motor Hotel
near O'Hare airport. An open bar provided the fuel and
Fifth Street contributed the music for a traditional cele-
bration, complete with a 1950's segment and the
complaints of irritated hotel employees.
So we had a traditional homecoming and it was a big
success; proving the old adage that if vou have a tradi-
tional homecoming, it will probably be a big success.
Black Student Association
The Black Student Association, presently under the
leadership of Titus Garnett, is a social and cultural orga-
nization designed to aid in the stimulation of Blacks' in-
terest on campus and to develop relationships with
Blacks at other Colleges in similar situations.
Although the Black Student Association consists of a
small membership, 31 people, it has made an enormous
contribution to the existence of Blacks on this campus. It
exists as a relatively comfortable environment, similar to
the "home away fiom home" type of warmth and security.
It exists as link which pulls Blacks together because of
each and everyone's unique identities, personalities, and
While proceeding to strengthen our cultural values,
concepts and communication, it's used as a social outlet
where various problem situations are discussed and
analyzed. Because there are no Black faculty and ad-
ministrative members it's our only means of com-
munication with the Administrative Staff. The BSA as a
whole makes the decisions and propositions, if necessary,
on current issues involving Black students.
Some of the future goals of the BSA are: to increase
Black enrollment through the recruitment programs; to
indulge in the improvement of the environment for future
Black students; to create better interrelationships with
other cultmes here on campus; to improve facilities such
as increasing the amount of Black Literature in the
library and improving the BSA room. But the ultimate
goal of the BSA is to promote student survival
academically in an environment lacking and desperately
in need of Black facultv members.

Fanning a dead fire
The IBC cheerleaders, like cheerleaders everywhere,
make a lot of noise. But it's noise with a purpose, for it
promotes school spirit at IBC ball games. Whether the
ball is foot, base, basket or puck, and whether the game is
on home soil or foreign, these girls display a generous
amount of enthusiasm for their teams.
There are times, however, when the cheerleaders
become discouraged, disillusioned, and disheartened at
the lack of audience response. Some people even have the
nerve to say their cheers are dumb. These people might
not brush off the cheerleaders' efforts if they knew the rig-
orous schedules of daily practice required of the girls.
Then, again, they might. You never know about Proco
This lack of student support is evident in the outcome
of the cheerleaders' only fund-raising event: selling
buttons for homecoming. This year, the effort just broke
even, forcing the group to use the money allocated them
by the Athletic Department to buy new sweaters for
basketball season. Hence; no money for anything else.
The pom-pon squad (that's the dictionary spelling) has
goals and methods similar to those of the cheerleaders.
However, while the cheerleaders rely on their voices to
stimulate adrenalin flow, the pom-pon girls use their
bodies in conjunction with recorded music. Because of its
distracting effect upon the players, this type of routine is
performed during half time. Although the human side of
the squad functions flawlessly (thanks to daily rehears-
als), the mechanical side often causes trouble. Anyone
who has gotten a good look at IBC's vintage PA system
will understand the reason for some of those embarras-
sing five-minute silences during routines.
Other problems encountered by the squad include
daily fights over the use of the gym floor for practice
(small basketball games keep getting in the way),
conflicting class and work schedules (there are fourteen
girls on the squad), and finally the amount of plain work
needed to get everyone to move in unison. But they do it
Financially, the pom-pon squad is in no better shape
than the cheerleaders. This year for the first time the
squad was included in the Athletic Department budget.
The money was used to buy material for hot pants outfits,
which the girls made themselves. The sweaters and boots
were paid for by the girls themselves. You see, these girls
are willing to do a lot of work for the school's benefit.

Among the new clubs organized this year was the Illi-
nois Benedictine Historical Society, also known as the
History Club. The idea for the club was originated and
put into practice by Rick Zunica, first club president. The
club's function is to bring about a greater interest in and
understanding of history and closer contact among the
history majors. This was accomplished through such ac-
tivities as a reception for Mr. Joel Setzen, the latest addi-
tion to the history department. Members also took several
trips to the Chicago Public Library for its lecture series
on cities and to Harper College to see the documentary
film, 'The Sorrow and the Pity." Lectures and discussions
were held on the topic of Nazi Germany. A panel con-
sisting of Fr. Odilo, Dr. Roth, and Dr. Kornaros discussed
first-hand experiences in occupied Europe during World
War n. Another highlight was Mr. Dyba's every interest-
ing and informative lecture and slide presentation on the
Lincoln home in Springfield. His reputation as a model
builder is spreading statewide due to his scale model of
the Lincoln home complete with furnishings, wallpaper,
The club has contacted several colleges in the immedi-
ate area regarding the formation of a large interscholastic
historical society. By pooling the resources of all the
colleges much more could be achieved in the area of his-
The History Club has come a long way according to
club moderator. Miss Tysl. She feels that it has ac-
complished a great deal considering the short time of its
existence. The club is not designed to be just an academic
association but also a social organization bringing majors
into a closer-knit group.

After two years of dormancv the BioIoe;\' Club has
become an active element on campus. The club has spon-
sored various activities ranging from lectures and mo\'ies
to field trips and campus clean-ups.
Among the many lectures offered by the club were fea-
tured speakers on taxidermv and radiation biologv. Dr.
Larry Kamin, club moderator, furnished a talk on the
relationship between cell shape and wall composition in
pea epecotyls which proved interesting to biology majors
(especiallv those in his class).
The field trips sponsored b\' the club included several
fossil hunts and a trip to Brookfield Zoo.
"Earth Week" activities, such as the planting and
slough cleaning projects, were aimed at impro\ing the

Ah, my friend, it is truly a pity: the mirror a veritable
sieve for starlight, scarred by fumes from the college en-
gines; antiquated wiring and inadequate mounting; a
photometer and a new secondary mirror, waiting for
mountings; birds nesting in idle, inoperable shutters, the
scaffolding needed for their repair withheld for matters of
insurance. This observatory is in abominable condition.
Yet perhaps there are grounds for hope. One lad, bv
dint of a fortnight's inspired labor, restored the shutters
to full operation last March, only to have them fail that
May. Undaunted, he and his companions assembled and
presented several stunning and informing audio-visual
shows, seemingly unnoticed by the rest of the college.
And even without scaffolding, they recendy obtained an
extension ladder with which they once more repaired the
shutters. Then, through their telescope, they witnessed
ecstatic visions of the moon and Saturn which thou and I
had perished to view.
Still, I cannot quiet a nagging fear that this once-
thri\ing, (juietly strixang observatory may like a meteor
suddenly be bursting into brilliance only to fade as sud-
denlv, leaving a faint trail of hope behind.

PHYSICS CLUB: D. Rita, J. Zaszadzinski, M.
Bohan, A. Kriiml, L. Dwiel, C. Ekins.
Editors Note:! The following article subtly presents such
a strongly emotional human interest story that it was left
untouched by red pen.
IBC's physics club is an affiliate of the National Society
of Physics Students. Its members are interested in many
areas of physics.
Early this year, the physics club sponsored a trip to the
National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois.
Under the leadership of its officers (pres. Mike Bohan,
vice-pres. Jack Liedtke, and secretary Lynn Dwiel) the
club has sponsored several lectures for the student body.
Among these were The Mossbauer Effect, by Dr. Bobby
Dunlop, and Dr. James Gindler speaking on The Sepera-
tion of Radionuclides. Both guest speakers were from /ir-
gonne National Laboratories. These lectures were usually
quite interesting, though not too many students were
acquainted with this fact. Besides the faculty, it was
always the same group of students who showed up for the
lectures. Some of the (Don Shanske, Carl Ekins, and John
Zazadzinski) are probably more known as intramural
basketball plavers than as physics students.
Other people on campus may wonder what the physics
club had to offer that drew these guys away from other
activities. Most likelv the answer can be found in the
Physics Seminar room in the SLC. It's to this room that
the physics club disappears, speaker and all, after each
lecture. It is in this room, with its relaxed atmosphere
(and refreshments), that the students can talk to the facul-
ty, speaker, and fellow students about the lecture (or just
how much they didn't quite understand it). Then, after
the speaker has been thanked, and most of the faculty has
gone home, there might be a flash of white sailing across
the room and dropping neatlv into the wastepaper
basket, with a voice announcing "two points!"

"Circle K is not a dude ranch" . . . or so the man says.
And hark! He is correct, for Circle K is indeed not a
ranch of dudes, nor is it one of those $1.79 steak joints,
nor is it a dive on Cicero Avenue. No, Circle K is none of
the above, instead we find ourselves confronting a rather
eccentric collection of charitable-minded people who
prefer raising monev for Kiwanis rather than throwing
parties for people with beer on their minds. And that, my
friends is what Circle K is all about.
Now the intelligent reader will find himself making a
rather difficult cognitive leap after reading the above in-
formation. Hell probably be thinking "Ah yes, so that's
why these people sponsor all those odd events such as the
canoe race on the slough, and the basketball marathon,
and that's why there are always some members standing
at Maple and 53 selling peanuts every year. Now I under-
stand . . . it's because Circle K is a dude ranch!"
"Circle K is not a dude ranch" . . . or so the man savs.
Field Day Makes Good Times for Few
This year, Field Day was given a last chance to prove
its worth. Despite much faculty opposition classes were
suspended for the "organized" day of fun and games.
Ted Sevier, as president of the sophomore class, coor-
dinated the activities. He was told that the results of the
1972 field day would have to justify the further existence
of the activity.
Field day was held on September 26. About 100 people
participated in a dozen activities ranging from chess to
volleyball to wheelbarrow races. Those involved enjoyed
themselves, others back in the dorms or at home studied,
grateful for the chance to catch up on schoolwork. That
evening, the residents gorged themselves on a special
buffet featuring baron of beef. The feast ers put away over
a pound of meat apiece.
A prize of $50 dollars was awarded to the top class in
overall performance. The sophomore class (class of 75)
took first place for the second consecutive year.
After field day, the results were analyzed and dis-
cussed. Turnout was acknowledged to be low, con-
sidering the total student enrollment. Some activities
were cancelled and others delayed due to failure of teams
to show up for the scheduled event. Basically, it was
agreed that class rivalry as a viable motivating force was
no longer operative.
What does this mean in terms of the fijture? Whether
field day will be held again is still questionable, but it
probaby will. If held it will not be organized along class
lines, nor will one class be responsible for the day.
Women's Basketball Team Gains Enthusiasm
Since women haven't been around this school too long,
it stands to reason that women's basketball is a recent ad-
dition to the list of sports at IBC. However, in the few
years of its existence, the team has acquired quite a fol-
Perhaps the fac-t that both of the coaches (Tom Thil-
many and Steve Bufano) were men indicates that
women's basketball is not quite as liberated as some other
women's activities, but the coaches did not hinder the
team's performance by any means. Under captains Marie
McNamara and Barb Goodwin, the team "wiped" Judson
and St. Xavier. In addition, one of their more noteworthy
experiences was a game played in McGaw Hall prior to
an Iowa-Northwestern game. The team members admit
that their "toughest competition" was George Williams
College and Olivet Nazarene (our press release bears the
curious notation "no fun " in relation to these two games,
possibly indicating that the team lost). In any case, no-
thing can be said against the women's basketball team.
They're in it for the fun of it.

Tournament Spurs IM Basketball Competition
Translated literally, intramural means "within the
walls." Intramural athletics, therefore, mav be defined as
athletic activities carried on within the walls of the insti-
tution. One of the objec-tives of intramurals is to get as
many people as possible to participate in as many athletic
activities as possible. This is what Coach Ostrowski, the
program direc-tor, set out to do.
His success was evident. The intramural program had
record participation this year. It all started with the foot-
ball season, but while that was going on there were a
number of other activities. These included chess, tennis,
and ping-pong tournaments, to name a few. Vollevball,
the next major activity, usually has good participation,
and this year was no exception. The season started with
some very lopsided games but most of the teams blos-
somed into real contenders.
While the volleyball season was in progress. Coach Os-
trowski sponsored a weekend basektball tournament. It
was doubled elimination with a total of fifteen teams en-
tered. The action was great, and the tournament was a
fine addition to the intramural program.
The continued success of the intramurals program was
no surprise. Some improvements can be credited to the
efforts of Coach Ostrowski and others; but intramurals at
IBC could probably not fliil unless vou cut the arms off
half the students, and the legs ofPthe other half.
Tom Shanka Wins Hockey MVP Title
A strong returning line-up and a few promising
freshmen carried the Hockey Team (Club) to a confer-
ence third place with a 6-4 record. Play was inconsistent,
however, holding the overall record to 11-14.
The members voted forward Tom Shonka Most Valu-
able Player. Shonka was also the season's top scorer, with
29 goals and 22 assists. Most Improved Player title went
to right-winger Jim Konrath.
Status-wise, the club remained in a state of confusion,
somewhere between "club" and "varsity team". The orga-
nization had a president, Tom Smoucha, as well as a cap-
tain, Jerry Sullivan. The alternates were Ed Picard and
Sonny Franiak. Charles Stasica, the Proco alumnus who
coaches the team, continued to work with the members
toward both a better team and a clearer status. He ex-
pected a decision in favor of team standing, but probably
not until the 1974-75 season.
The outlook for the coming season is favorable. Eleven
members, including Shonka, Picard, and Sullivan, will re-
turn as lettermen. The two- and three-year veterans, with
a complement of incoming freshmen, should be able to
settle down to a better, more consistent game.

A lot of people are wondering what happened to the
coffeehouse, including the managers. What was promised
was entertainment and refreshments every weekend and
records every weekday evening. The obvious fact was
that entertainment was sparse and hours were nonexis-
tent. But another fact was that things did get better as the
year progressed, and student support grew until the
Tabard could almost be considered a vital part of the
campus life. Almost.
When Paul Fitzgerald took over as manager in Sep-
tember, he knew very little about procuring entertain-
ment and even less about eliciting student co-operation.
The result was a series of performances by students which
were poorly attended; and at the same time there was a
wave of vandalism which nearly reduced the coffeehouse
to four bare walls. Fitzgerald was ready to give up, and
the entertainment suffered as a result.
Finally, in November, Bob Ingrisano offered to act co-
manager of the Tabard, to which Fitzgerald readily
agreed. Ingrisano knew many of the students who had
been throwing unauthorized beer parties in the Tabard.
Since these parties had been a major cause of the damage,
Ingrisano concentrated on persuading the students that
the Tabard was something they could be proud of if they
acted responsibly. The idea of no hassles from the school
proved to be motivation sufficient to make the partiers
clean up and police their own gatherings. As a
consequence, the Tabard began to look better as repairs
During the second semester, the popularity of having
parties in the coffeehouse threatened to overshadow its
function as a place to have live music. Consequently, the
managers sought to prevent other groups who might not
police themselves so well from spoiling the privilege. The
device agreed upon was a deposit asked of anyone who
planned to throw a party. This money was collected
beforehand to guarantee that no damage would occur
and the place would be left fairly clean. There was some
grumbling and a few mixups, but on the whole, the idea
worked verv well.
Meanwhile, Fitzgerald's entertainment was improving.
There were usually two or three performances by off-
campus entertainers every month. Often the performers
would bring along friends who played a set free, and this
helped to provide variety and quantity of entertainment.
Both of the managers were satisfied at the year's end
that they really had something going in the form of the
Tabard. It had, they felt, great possibilities for reviving
the dormant social life at IBC. However, they still felt
like they were working against the administration and
some of the students, and they looked for more support
and co-operation from both groups in planning for the
Tabard managers Paul Fitzgerald and Bob Ingrisano.

The 1972-73 Productions season proved to be nearly as
dramatic offstage as on. Producer-director J.C. Barnhart
hired a fulltime technical direc-tor, Menno J.M. Kraai, to
design sets and Ughting for the shows and to teach the
newly-created theater history, stagecraft and scenery
design courses. Mr. Kraai would also assist Mr. Barnhart
in constructing the Studio, an intimate, 150 seat theatre
located in a wing adjacent to the main stage in Sacred
Beginning the season was the nostalgic musical -
comedy 'The Boy Friend." Its large cast of 23 included 14
newcomers and featured two IBC freshmen, Vicki Bernd
and Jim Kucharsld, along with IBC voice instruc-ter Mrs.
Rosalie Loeding, in the lead role of Madame Dubonnet.
Most of the members of Mike Mensa's stage band for The
Boy Friend also appeared in Fr. Alban Hrebic's stage
band show Sound Out. Dominating the show were the
seven members of Aureus, Mensa's professional jazz/rock
group consisting mainly of current, past or future IBC
students. Three senior music majors who appeared in
Sound Out, Michelle Hayes, Ron Paryl and Chris
Markiewicz, made their conducting debut in the next
show. Born to us a Child, the annual Christmas concert.
Trouble arose for Productions over the semester break,
however, when Mr. Kraai relinquished his duties as tech-
nical director after four months of service. Mr. Barnhart
and the community people who had helped him design
and build sets for previous season did the technical work
for the remainder of the season. Mr. Kraai remained on
the teaching faculty through the spring semester and con-
tinued technical construction in the Studio.
Snow White i? the Seven Dwarfs began 1973 as the an-
nual children's musical. Generally light on student partic-
ipation, this year's kid's show featured no IBC under-
graduates. But faculty member John K. Smith, head of
IBC's Right to Read Program, made his second children's
musical appearance in the part of Sir Dandiprat Bombas.
Mr. Smith's earlier appearance had been an unforgettable
portrayal of Captain Hook in the Peter Pan production of
two years ago. IBC faculty members are not strangers to
the Productions state. James Clark, speech department
chairman, and Thomas Rich, admissions dean, are also
active in Productions. But no one could have expected
that the faculty member who would take the lead role of
Henry Higgins in IBC's next production would be the
producer -direc-tor J.C. Barnhart. The original Pygmalion
casting had to be changed because of a schedule conflic-t,
and time did not permit subsequent auditions, so Mr.
Barnhart took the role himself. He also designed and
built most of the set himself. IBC student Matt Cramer
was also featured in Pygmalion as Freddy Eynsford-Hill.

from Man of LaMancha ■
A balletorio is an oratorio with ballet. Only one work
can be classified as a balletorio, and that one work is A
Liglit for the Darkness, which made its Chicago Premiere
at the Auditorium Theatre on April 7, 1973. Produced by
the IBC music department and not included in the
Productions line-up of shows, A Light for the Darkness
was composed and conducted by Fr. Alban as a benefit
performance for the college. 29 professional dancers from
the Loretto Rozak dancers and 17 members of the WON
Showcase Orchestra Performed along with the IBC
Symphonv Orchestra and Chorus. Senior music major
Michelle Hayes was the only student soloist for the per-
Rounding out the season was Man of LaMancha, the
musical based loosely on Don Quixote by Miguel de Cer-
vantes. Never before performed in the Western suburbs
by a college-community theatre, LaManclm offered many
interesting challenges to the production staff, including a
dungeon setting with no curtain, a st\'lized rape scene
and the necessity of double-casting roles. Students cast
were John Seno, Jim Kucharski and Fran Jansta. Manv
Productions critics on and off campus hailed LaMancha
as the best production in IBC's history.
Looking ahead to next vear. Productions will open the
Studio and be the first non -commercial theater to operate
two theatre houses simultaneously. Mr. Barnhart has also
hired a new technical director, Michael Clark of
Manhattan, Kansas, to take over the post vacated by Mr.
Kraai. Productions will offer nine shows to its audience
next season, a total unapproached by any other college-
communitv theatre in the area.
Reader's Theatre has rapidly become the nitrogen of
IBC's cultural atmosphere. Each new production is
guaranteed massive crowds, thanks to "the high caliber
performances which have become a tradition.
Three presentations were made by Reader's Theatre in
the 1972-3 season. The first was A Spoon River Antholo-
gy, a dramatic adaptation of Edgar Lee Master's long
poem. It was presented in the standard Reader's Theatre
format as directed by Jim Clark (Act One) and Jean
Smith (Act Two). In Spoon River, the characters speak
from a cemetery in a small midwestern town. Their post-
humous observations on their former lives gave interest-
ing insights — sometimes funny, sometimes sad, mostly
valid — into the human condition.
The ne.vt Reader's Theatre offering was a creatively
structured adaptation of St. Exupery's novel. The Little
Prince. Jean Smith introduced to delighted IBC audi-
ences the techniques of chamber theatre and legitimate
theatre in conjunction with the ususal Reader's Theatre
in this modest tale of love. The prince leaves his planet
and comes to earth where he and the pilot grow to learn
(with the help of a wise fox) what is really important.
The Tabard seemed to be the best stage for these two
plays. But in the third presentation, director John Smith
chose the more formal Social Center for his environment.
The Seven Ages of Man was the title, a patois of readings
expounding upon an introductory thematic speech fi-om
Shakespeare's As You Like It. John Smith collected mate-
rial from such diverse sources as Dylan Thomas, Thorton
Wilder, and Mike Royko. There was no action: Mr. Smith
relied on his cast to develop vocally the readers, touching
on each of the seven ages, from the infant to the senile
So this year was one of innovation in Reader's Theatre.
New forms and new locales confidently emerged and
were well-received. Surely there was, as they say, some-
thing for everyone.

WIBC station manager Ron Kubacki
WIBC, IBC's first campus radio station, made its first
broadcast on November 13, 1972. Long promised by SG's
Radio Club, the current -carrier AM station was formed
under the leadership of Ron Kubacki with the guidance
of faculty adviser Jeff Madura. Initial problems were
modifying the existing transmitter to reach the whole
campus, selecting a suitable location for the studios, and
obtaining adequate broadcast equipment (turntables,
tape decks, mikes, record albums, etc.).
Since the Radio Club had left no existing structure,
Kubacki decided to disband it totally and form the sta-
tion WIBC in its place. Student government had not
allocated a budget to the Radio Club for the 72-73 school
year, but $82 still had been unspent from the previous
year's funds. WIBC inherited this, along with a schematic
diagram for a transmitter which physics major Kubacki
had deemed insufficient to "reach the next room " much
less the whole campus. A better design was obtained and
Ed Keating (then the other physics major) began its as-
After repeated attempts at securing a large room in
Benedictine Hall (the Ad Building) to serve as a studio,
Kubacki was forced to settle for the Radio Club's small
meeting room on the first floor of Procopius Hall (the old
Science Building). The contents of that room were several
score 7 foot 2x4's, one box of nails, one desk, and a metal
cabinet housing the skeleton of an old Army surplus AM
transmitter. Combining the first two items, Kubacki,
aided by Fran Jansta and Bob Keating, began to build
WIBC's first broadcast studio.
$82 doesn't go very far nowadays, so the radio station
soon ran out of money. WIBC needed a promotional
director and found one in Vince Adams who helped raise
$150 in ads from local businesses before he vacated the
post to seek bigger and better things. The money was
used to complete the studio and to purchase the needed
Soon after completing the studio, announcer auditions
were held to fill the planned 18)2 hour per day, six day per
week broadcast schedule. About twenty students were
selected from the over thirty who tried out. The initial
idea was to have each announcer do a two-hour show
three days a week. Soon, more announcers were added
when some shows were cut to an hour and new an-
nouncers given air time. The WIBC power structure at
this time was:
Ron Kubacki — Station Manager
Fran Jansta — Assistant Station Manager & Public
Ed & Bob Keating — Technical Directors
Fran Donovan — Program Director
George Sessa — Head Announcer
The latter two soon found their academic schedules pro-
hibitive to work on the station and resigned their posts.
Most administrative problems being solved, it was only
natural that WIBC should suffer technical problems. The
station's signal could not reach across campus; in fact, it
could hardly be picked up outside the old Science Build-
ing. Several subsequent attempts to increase power also
fell short of the desired goal. By first term's end, the fu-
ture of WIBC was in question and it became fashionable
to refer to the station as the big campus joke.
It was time for a powerful and drastic action, some-
thing which can be quite lacking on the IBC campus. The
Student Affairs Dean, Mr. Weinlader, helped by putting
WIBC on next year's budget as a separate entity, much
like the Eagle and the Flux. He would be able to secure
at least $1000, subject to the Trustee's approval. SG
helped the station's more immediate cash needs by
granting $.500 from its existing unused funds.
Meanwhile, the student announcers were gaining valu-
able radio experience, the results of which would
hopefully mean better listening for the IBC students in
future years, once the transmitter problems are cleared
up. Before the first semester was completed, WIBC had
obtained another room, adjacent to the studio, to be used
for its offices. The studio itself was expanded also, with
the broadcast area including two fully carpeted and
somewhat accoustical studios and connecting hallway.
By year's end, a new staff had been appointed to run
WIBC during the 73-74 school year. Plans were being
made to purchase a professionally-built current-carrier
transmitter and to obtain promotional recordings from
large music distributors free of charge. The possibility of
going low-power educatinal FM was also mentioned. But
the biggest obstacle in WIBC's path was to overcome the
doubt of the student body that the station could amount
to something more than a campus flop and give the
students what they really want in the way of entertain-
ment. Hopefully, the student body will not be disap-
The 1972-73 school year brought numerous changes in
the Flux, the student newspaper. Under the leadership of
senior Jim Kauling, the old paper was given a badly
needed face-lift. The staff was expanded from the faithful
few of previous years to approximately thirty students,
thanks to vigorous recruiting by staff members.
By mid-year, renovation of the format was completed.
Straight objec-tive reporting was replaced by a more sub-
jective style of writing. "We tried to add more human in-
terest to the articles; more about the students them-
selves," associate editor Nancy Valentias explained.
The "new look" of the paper was met with a wide range
of opinions. Most upperclassmen felt that the quality of
the paper had improved greatly over the last years, and
many were for the first time reading more than just the
There was also some criticism of the format. "The em-
phasis is on past events — reviews of plays and movies —
which is good, but that's not the only function of the
paper," commented senior Joan Carberry. Other students
agreed that there should be more coverage of coming
events. One senior put it this way, "The news is late, old,
or not pertaining to campus life."
There was no doubt the the Flux aroused discussion on
campus. Editorials on the role of Student Government led
to better understanding of the workings of that organiza-
tion. Other articles critical of the traditional freshman
"beanie week" helped to place that piece of college life in
the annals of an earlier time at Procopius. "I would say
the paper is improving all the time," said sophomore Bill
Smith. Most students seem to agree.

You may wonder why I chose this method to reveal myself to you. I can only say
that this is the best way I may safeguard my identity.
All of your fellow students have received letters just like this one. My demands
are of the entire school. What I need is the use of all the laboratory space on the
campus for one year, in order to perfect my final weapon. Of its nature you will
know nothing, and no one will interfere with my work.
You may wonder what I have to back up these demands. What threat to this school
do I wield? Have I managed to close all the liquor stores in the area? No, I have
not. Have I kidnapped the coaches? Not that, either. Have I tampered with the
typewriters, booby-trapped the bassoons, messed with the motorcycles, fixed the fur-
naces, doped the dope, poisoned the peppers, sneezed in the ice cream, or given
Mr. Fieldstack a parking ticket? No, nothing so discreet or simple.
You see, I have perfected a technique for capturing people's memories and storing
them on sheets of paper between embossed covers. I call this devilish device a
"yearbook", and I warn you that even as you read this, your memories are already
UNDER MY CONTROL!!! And if you do not cooperate with me, I will see to it that every
one of these yearbooks is BURNED, and all your memories along with it! And, what
is worse, I'll put back all the BAD THINGS in their place. You won't be able to laugh
about getting caught with a girl in your room — you'll WORRY for the rest of your
life whether that knock at the door is the R.A.! And you won't be able to chuckle
about the boring classes you had to take — I'll make you SIT THROUGH EACH of them
for the rest of your life! And you won't be able to snicker about the time you got
sick on Bali Hai and Stroh's — but I don't need to go through all the gruesome details,
since you've got the idea by now.
So, students, you must give me what I want or face the awful consequences. My
instructions will be given to you ONE WEEK FROM TODAY, through campus mail.
Snake River —
Well, I'm back. There's some o' you who might not remember me, so by
way o' introduction, I'm Caleb Shucks. I was here before. I did some
reportin' fer that crazy magazine that nobody liked. You might o'
remembered I was an Oceanography major back at the University of
Hell's Canyon. Well, now since the Snake River's half polluted, that sorta
naturally led me inta garbage. I tried workin' in New York fer a while, but
I kept gettin' towed out ta sea. So I figgered the only logical choice was ta
Well, I'm back. They gave up on that goofy magazine, an' got a year-
book instead. It's a good ol' fashioned yearbook, an' I'm writin' fer it as a
good ol' fashioned garbageman. The editors told me they needed a real
"inside view " o' this school, an' a "flow chart o' systems operation." Well,
since I figger that the only thing that flows around here is garbage, I orter
write bout that. Ya know, every piece o' trash tells a story, an' I got plenty
o' stories to tell "bout IBC.
My office (see picture 1) ain't like most o' the offices around this place.
Sure, they all got a chair an' a wastebasket, but most of 'em got a desk as a
stoppin' point in between. Kinda like breakin' eggs into a cup before ya
put 'em in the pan, so's to make sure they ain't rotten. Anyway, the feller
in picture 2 is the secretary they gave me. He used ta work fer Hallmark
Cards fer a couple o' years, till they found out he couldn't read nor write.
But that don't bother me, 'cause I just let' 'im ride 'round the campus on 'is
little vacuum cleaner. Now me, I got wheels. Four on the floor an' get a
load o' that upholstery! (picture 3). Boy, when my secretary got a look at
that piece o' machinery, he got so jealous that he set right down an'
designed his own "Automatic Trash Recycler. " Ya can see it in picture 4.
He tells me that the best part's behind the wall, an' 111 take his word fer it.
It must be good, 'cause they've got 'em all over the campus.
But gittin' back to that there "flow chart," I guess I'd better tell ya 'bout
my route an' all that stuff. Your average piece o' garbage (see picture 5)
starts out in what we in the trade call a trashcan. Maybe someone didn't
like what it said, or they just didn't understand it, so they tossed it out.
But whatever it was, once it's in that can it's just garbage ta me. Most
trashcans look just about the same, though 'round here some of 'em have
the hole on the side 'stead o' on the top (picture 6). My secretary tells me
he's workin' on one with a hole in the bottom. Now who woulda thought o'
So anyways, I take all these trashcans an' dump 'em in my vehicle an'
scoot down the hall to the trash depot out back (picture 7). That's right
outside Mr. Englert's office, in case yer wonderin' where ta find it. I leave
my bags o' trash there until the pickup truck comes. Sounds like a song,
doesn't it? Like somethin' my mother taught me. Ya know, she was a good
women, my mother was. Ah, but that's neither here nor there, as they say.
Well, actually, she's there an' I'm here, so let's get back to my garbage.
We'll follow the pickup truck (picture 8) as it carries oui* trash down to the
hopper. I can't fer the life o' me figger out why they call it the hopper,
cause I ain't yet seen it hop. I bet it'd make a real mess iif it did, too.
That's cause they put all the garbage from the school inta the thing (see
picture 9), an' lemme tell ya', that's a heap o' garbage.
1 l'( tr liiid (lood lifi'd
Now don t ask me where all this garbage goes when the truck hauls it
awa\', but I suspect they just take that hopper an' dump it in the slough.
Mv secretar\' told me there's a hole at the bottom o' the slough an' thev
have ta keep dumpin' garbage in so's the water wont run out. Kinda
reminds me o' ol' Hell's Canyon.
Well now, I've told va the path of a tvpical piece o' IBC garbage, so let's
go in depth an look at some o" the high points o' the IBC tra.sh system.
Well, first there's this place up on third floor that they call the IFM, an'
ever since the police took it over last vear, its been a regular beehive o'
garbage. Ya see, there's some state law that savs va have ta make twice as
manv copies o' evervthin' as ya need. They waste a lotta paper that way,
but I guess the\' get their money's worth outta the Xerox machine. An'
that's not all. Those guys got a sody pop machine up there, just like in a
fillin' station, an' that machine really turns out some serious trash (see pic-
ture 10). There's cans an' poptops an' plastic rings an' cardboard boxes an'
spilt pop an' cigar butts an' busted toy guns an' pretend fingerprints an'
pla\' traffic tickets an' beer cans an' pretzel boxes an' uniforms an' patrol
cars an', oh, I don't know what else.
Elsewhere around the campus, there's some might v strange trash comes
out o' the ol' science buildin'. Ya cim see bv picture 11 that mv secretary's
been at work out in back. He tells me he's installed some sunken garbage
cans out there ta keep the animals an' football plavers an' psychology
majors awaw In the picture va can see a couple of artifacts, as I call 'em.
The Max-Pax is courtesy o' Bill Sobol, an' the beer can is courtesy o' the
Inside the buildin' it's the same ol' thing. Why even the yearbook (see
pic-ture 12) itself sports a handsome collection o' beer cans. The main dif-
ference is that there alwa\s seems to be a boot nearby. Guess that's why
they work so efficiently.
The last stop on our misguided campus tour is what my secretary calls
his greatest achievement (see picture 13). He calls it the Strat-O-Trash. It
works something' like a big cannon, an' the idea is ta shoot the garbage
inta orbit. M\' secretar\' asked me ta thank the math department fer lettin'
him use the computer ta design it. It's not workin' \et though, cause they
haxen't figgered a way o' puttin' a muffler on it, and they're afraid it might
wake up the theology classes.
Well, that's about it. I've gotta get back ta my garbage, so 1 can't write
any more. I hope my spellin' wa.sn't too bad, an' I'll see ya round the ol'
hopper. I still can't figger that out' though . . .
